cold war, the plan was really to persuade left of center intellectuals, especially in europe that the west, particularly the united states, was the powerhouse of culture and ideas, that it wasn't any of the soviet experiment had died, and the best people to do that for you were ex-communists and democratic socialists what the cia used to call the ncl, the noncomist left. and so amazingly enough, when the house of unamerican activities got going, some cia operatives found themselves right in the line of fire because they had so many connections to the democratic socialist left across europe, the mccarthy items were very worried by these guys .. and some were professors who had left leaning tendencies themselves but they were democrats,. >> rose: wha and what do you mae of the french who came to the real situation that is soviet union was not what they believed it to be, you know, french intellectuals? >> they rather took their time over this realization. i mean by now we all have the hindsight benefit there of. but i would like to think i would have dipped out somewhere around

thrown off all of the old problems of europe and britain. you know, the social system and those kinds of things that dickens felt really got in the way of business. when he got here, he was idolized straight off the ship. he was invited out to dinner every night. huge banquets. he was not pretentious. he was many things but pretentiousness wasn't something that he ever displayed. >> so this is a picture of the two great victorian novelists, friends and rivals: tell me a little bit about it. >> what the caricaturist has tried to capture here most importantly is their social distinctions, their class difference. wearing top hats, the hats of the pa trishian class. dickens in the hat of the common man. of course what the caricaturist is pointing towards is the difference in their readership, the difference being dickens' much broader appeal to the reading public. also i found the bowler hits a hint to his american audience as well. dickens was highly aware of how perilous his own life was in terms of the social circumstances that he grew up in. his father was imprisoned for debt. dickens
